. how would you compare ann romney's speech to mrs. obama's speech last night? >> i think mrs. obama delivered a passionate speech. she certainly stirred the base. but i don't think she moved the needle with independents, women who are on the fence, and disaffected democrats in making the case why her husband deserves another four years. she did say she made an emotional case, hey, look, change is hard. we're in this for the long haul. trust my guy. give him another four years. i think what was interesting is she did try to compete with ann romney. that's natural. she is the first lady. ann romney could be the first lady in waiting if you will. but this is the first time we've heard michelle talk about being a mom in chief. remember michelle obama was a career woman. and now all of a sudden she wants to talk about the importance of being a mom, which i think is great, but i think this is a new narrative we're seeing her inject in things. and i do think ultimately the speech was a softer version of what we see from obama on the campaign trail. she attacked success. she said success is

redistribution is. and that's a solid, socialist tenet. but so far mr. obama not seized assets. he has, however, taken over the medical care industry but congress gave him the authority to do that. he didn't do it by executive fiat. now i know many of you are going to write to me screaming, screaming in print that barack obama is a raving socialist. you might be right but you will never prove it. the president does want to regulate corporate activity to some extent but after the mortgage investment con that led to the terrible recession. we need some federal oversight on financial gang centers. the huge mistake mr. obama is making is that he wants to rub the entire u.s. economy from washington. that has gotten him into big economic trouble. blaming the continuing economic mess on president bush is hollow and cynical. it is the president's policies now that are driving economic results. 45 months is more than enough time to reignite the powerful economic engine. more that be enough time. you can't solve all all all the problems in that time. but you can certainly gain some economic momentum it.

key swing state, mr. obama's lead is nine points, 53% to 44. and the president leads by 12 point in pennsylvania, 54 to 42. this quinnipiac university/cbs news/"new york times" polls has a margin of roar of three points so the leads are significant. our cbs news election analysis team is moving ohio from a toss- up to leaning toward mr. obama. with that, we estimate 255 electoral votes are solidly in the obama camp or leaning that way. for governor romney the number is 206 with 270 needed to win. the president would have to pick up just 15 in the remaining toss-up state that you see on this map in gray. if the president wins ohio, governor romney would have to nearly sweep those toss-up states in order to win the white house. so no surprise that we find both candidates in ohio today. our campaign 2012 team is on their trail and we're going to start tonight with nancy cordes. nancy. >> reporter: well, scott, it all comes down to women. the president won among women by eight points back in 2008. it's a big part reason he won here. but today's poll finds he has a far greater advanta

if they want it to grow. it's definitely unsustainable. and i think in the obama's speech last night, mr. obama's speech last night was basically quite a conservative speech, but if you strip it down to its essentials, says we're going to give you people who vote for us, lots and lots of perks, paid for by box on rich people and give you something for nothing and something for nothing is going to be paid for by rich people. i think it's a bad idea as charles payne so aptally said, it saps and destroys personal initiative. >> by the way, ben, i love you dearly, but that was a conservative speech, i'm jack lalanne. >> think about the audience talking to and-- >> in that audience you say just not ripping up the flag would make a conservative, but that's okay.
